Happy Friday the 13th!

Hi! Things are going great here and I want to wish you a happy (and safe) Friday the 13th!

I’ve got a new ad spot video for Dysfunctional Families – just under 1 minute 30 seconds. Please check it out and share it around.




We’re almost at $900 — which is amazing!
Thank you so much for making this possible.

I think that at $1000 I’m going to have to come up with something special to celebrate!

Talk to you more on Monday! Have a great weekend!

First you submit your project for approval. Depending on some mysterious formula, it will either take a few days for a human to review it or the website will instantly approve your project. In my case, I got instant approval and was presented with the “Continue to launch” BIG GREEN BUTTON.

Ah… but what happens when you press the BIG GREEN BUTTON ?
